By Joey Martin

Jerome, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) One group of dedicated patriots in Jerome is taking honoring our fallen 9/11 victims to another level.

Blair Crouch and the Jerome Historical Society have teamed up and planted 2,500 American flags in the southern Idaho soil.

The memorial is located at the Crossroads Point business park, across from the Flying J on Highway 93.

The Breathtaking display of patriotism and unity is free to all who wish to participate.

You can purchase one of the flags for 30 dollars.

All of the money raised will go to the Jerome Historical Society for some much needed upgrades.

"Blair Crouch and his father put up these flags every year, there's 2,500 flags behind m. they put this up every year and they started back in 2006 to commemorate the World Trade Center and the other buildings that were demolished when they were hit by planes."
Said Peggy Roberson from the Jerome Historical Society

The memorial will be set up until this weekend.

If you would like to purchase one of the flags the historical society will be set up at the Crossroads Point from 9 am until around 5 each day.

On Wednesday evening a special event was also be held at the location.

A local Jerome Boy Scouts troop ceremoniously retiring 101 American flags in commemoration of the September 11th attacks.
